Work elsewhere .. terrible management, poor training supervisors are dishonest and hypocritical, work in another pharmacy. National pharmacies don’t actually pass on savings to customers. They don’t pay any tax either.
Unfortunately the team culture was competitive rather than collaborating and positive. Don’t expect management to be fair and just as they act more favourably and selective to some. Staff training online is extensive and ongoing. There is an expectation to sell customers an annual membership ensuring discounts. The pay rate is good paid weekly and staff get a free membership.
Good company to work for. Management is great. Heaps of learning opportunities if wanted. Very welcoming and they treat their staff great. I personally LOVED working for National Pharmacies. Just wish that they owned more pharmacies in Victoria. I would be willing to work for them again in a heartbeat.
Very slow paced working environment.
Non progressive in terms of keeping up with technology and meeting customers needs.
Over the years that I worked at NP there were and continue to be redundancies and restructures. Males put into managerial roles and female equivalents re positioned.
There is poor workplace culture in this company
The best part of the day was interacting with product and service providers.
I enjoy the environment where i am able to use my skills and expertise which i have been trained for and get a lot of satisfaction with the outcomes and overcoming challenges.
I'm very much a team player and get along very well my colleagues as well as the customers.
excellent training and standards.
being employed as casual restricts family planning.
